Events management

The Diverse Matters team are experienced in organising a wide range of diversity events and seminars. 

A seminar or panel event is an excellent way to positively promote the value of diversity and inclusion. This could be an internal event or to the general public.  We are able to support with planning and developing:

  • Seminars
  • Panel events
  • Focus groups

We can support you with as little or as much as you require. We can arrange everything from start to finish including sourcing speakers, planning the day, preparing and briefing speakers, organising the promotion and marketing to just undertaking an aspect of the event as per each individual or organisation’s needs.

‘I attended four #BeYourself LGBT+ events. Each event had a different theme; BAME within LGBT+, trans awareness, bi-visibility and the final event was a wrap up which incorporated all themes including allies to celebrate LGBT history month 2017. All events had a range of good quality, open and entertaining speakers. Each talk was insightful, thought-provoking and empowered. I felt incredibly privileged to hear some really personal stories from the speakers and was empowered by their courage to share their individual experiences to help others. The events also included fantastic networking opportunities to meet like-minded people and share ideas’.
